11. I don't think you're a kook at all.

It's tricky when two such powerful ideas co-exist in the mind at the same time.

It seems to me that there's a decisive letting go that has to occur at some point that's hard to achieve. It's like being stuck between two rooms, one foot in one room and one foot in the other, and committing to the room you're talking about is hard because it's hard to let go of all the excitement going on in the other room.

If that makes sense.

But I love and understand the truth of what you're saying. The irony is, because of what's unfolding before us, it's probably actually never been easier to let go in the history of our species. Yet there are still "all the interesting things."

Now, I actually think a person can do both things: Let go completely (of attachments) and yet be engaged completely in the reality right in front of us.
